Newly published research by scientists with the Solid Carbon project shows that carbon dioxide taken from the atmosphere and injected into the deep subsea floor off Vancouver Island may turn into solid rock in about 25 years.
If all BC vehicles were powered by electricity instead of liquid fuels by 2055, BC would need to more than double its electricity generation capacity to meet forecasted energy demand—and the move could prove surprisingly cost-effective.
A team of international researchers plan to turn the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into rock by permanently injecting it beneath the Earth’s ocean floor through an ambitious, new research partnership announced today by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) at the University of Victoria.
Researchers have developed a hydrogen supply chain model that can enable the adoption of zero-emission, hydrogen-powered cars—transforming them from a novelty into everyday transportation in just 30 years.
The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) welcomes proposals for its new $1M Theme Partnership Program, which will connect top researchers with policy and industry leaders to develop climate change solutions for British Columbia and beyond.
A top climate change mitigation strategy favoured by British Columbians is the restoration of forests ravaged by wildfires and insects, according to an assessment of public attitudes toward forest carbon mitigation.
BC will need much more clean electricity and a wholesale change in commercial trucks operating in the province to meet its 2050 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target while supporting economic growth.
